Hello Werner, Andy, Balaji and friends :-)
I'd love to start helping you with this effort. I've developed basic
drivers before and I hope to learn a lot of things soon (advanced git,
how to manage lots of patches, openmoko drivers). I wonder what is the
best way to get started (I will have a few hours (2 <= hours <= 5 )
per day this month).
The following task seems good to get started. What do you think?
What I like from this task is that I will get familiar with the
Openmoko-specific kernel options and when something doesn't compile I
will start exploring the code, finding out why things break and so
